Cardiff City make a move to sign Nigerian youngster

English Premier League side Cardiff City have reportedly made a move to sign Nigerian striker Ayomide Faniyan according to All Nigeria Soccer.

Ahead of a possible transfer to The Bluebirds, Faniyan trained with their U23 team last month and featured in Professional Development fixtures against Birmingham City (April 6) and Bolton Wanderers (April 15).

The 19-year-old will be hoping to earn a contract after getting on the scoresheet in the 3-2 win vs Bolton.

Earlier in the season, he trained with West Ham for more than two months but nothing came out of it, as The Hammers chiefs felt he'll be blocking the pathway of promising youngster Amadou Diallo.

Faniyan tipped as a quick and powerful striker, has been searching for a new club since he mutually terminated his contract with Reading in September 2018.

Cardiff City were relegated from the Premier League on Saturday, May 4 following their 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace.
